Top 5 Homemade Christmas Decorations
Christmas is just a few days away now and what kind of a look would you like to give to your home this year? It is a good idea to give your home a unique as well as traditional look with the help of Christmas decorations that you can make at home. You can use the homemade Christmas decorations right from the doorway up to the mantle and envelop your home to bring in the joyous feeling of the Christmas season.
You can easily string together popcorn and cranberries to make nice garlands that can add to the festive feeling. Including a number of other items such as beads, silk flowers, buttons and some empty spools of thread covered with glitter will not only enhance the design but also can add color to the homemade Christmas decorations, such as buttons, beads, silk flowers and even empty thread spools covered in glitter. These garlands can be used as drapes across entryways and arches and around columns.
Cinnamon sticks and holiday ribbons in bright color are common and can be found in most homes. You can create decorations of a rustic nature with these scented sticks and they can adorn everything starting from the mantelpiece to the banister. On certain decorations you can use glittery wire ribbon to create a different and elegant effect. Alternatively, you can make use of torn calico, if want to sport a rustic frontier appearance.
Last year’s Christmas cards collection can be converted into a collage to celebrate this year’s festive season. A collage can be made by cutting the front illustrations on the cards and pasting them onto a reasonably big piece of artist’s canvas. You can choose to keep the collage on top of the mantle or replace a picture that you keep throughout the year with the colorful collage.
It is kind of a tradition to keep a wreath on the front door. You can include everything from buttons, candy canes, beads, hard candies and marbles to dog treats in the wreath so as to get the look that you want. All that you need to buy is a wire ring form or styrofoam and hot glue. The wreath can be placed wherever you feel its addition will give a boost to the Christmas decoration.
You can make your own luminaries for the mantle, walkway or doorway. You need to have containers that are somewhat transparent and which can hold a light source or else, you can make luminaries using paper bags and then filling them with sand so that they stay in place. Metal cans that are punched with decorative holes can also be used. You can use the luminaries however you want: along the walkway or one in each window as you wish. You should consider natural candles too. They will add that special touch in the evenings.
Homemade window clings can provide a lift to your windows. The things you will need to do that are fabric glue/paint, some glitter and wax paper. Sketch a snowflake pattern on the wax paper. Put a thin line of the fabric paint/glue on the template and allow it to dry. The fabric glue/paint can peeled from the wax paper after 24 hours and then stuck to the window’s glass.http://onlinedealszone.com/top-5-homemade-christmas-decorations/http://onlinedealszone.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/christmas-decorations.jpghttp://onlinedealszone.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/christmas-decorations-150x150.jpgDealsShoppingChristmas,Christmas cards,deals,Decorations,shopping
